The National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) is a coach training and certification program for all coaches in more than 60 sports. The NCCP has moved towards a competency-based approach where coaches are:

          • trained in NCCP outcomes relevant to the participants they are coaching (recreational participants to National level athletes)
          • evaluated by demonstrating coaching outcomes to a specified standard

To learn more about the NCCP, visit the Coaching Association of Canada web site and refer to the SFC NCCP Operations Manual.

SFC has defined a participant and a coach development model as well as 4 pathways to clarify how one goes about becoming a certified coach, and to demonstrate the overall vision of the federation for its coaches and participants in the years to come.
